Mahler's Symphonic Sonatas by Seth Monahan
English | 7 May 2015 | ISBN: 0199303460 | 296 Pages | PDF | 6 MB

Why would Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), modernist titan and so-called prophet of the New Music, commit himself time and again to the venerable sonata-allegro form of Mozart and Beethoven? How could so gifted a symphonic storyteller be drawn to a framework that many have dismissed as antiquated and dramatically inert? Mahler's Symphonic Sonatas offers a striking new take on this old dilemma.
